Here's wishing everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS and the best in the NEW YEAR.
I admit that this is about a 20 year old photo, but it seemed like a good time to use it again.
A great photo, with real snow. What a wonderful Christmas you will have this year!
An interesting 1914. What seems to be Firestone non-skids on the front and what looks like Monkey Wards on the rear. The dog bone radiator cap may one that I sold from 1955 to about 1965. I still have the match plate for them. I wonder if "Santa" is generous enough this year to make a present of the T. I would make a stocking big enough to hold it if he were so inclined.
I have a June, 1961 Hemmings Motor News. It is a little pocket size book with only 40 pages. I see you had an ad in there selling new Motometers for $6.50, all of the perfect reproductions of the Model T brass and aluminum patent plates for $2.00 each,and new horn bulbs for $2,00. All postpaid, too.
Seasons Greetings to one and all!
One of the best gifts I could have received was the knowledge and friendship found on this fourm.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Boxing Day everyone!
I remember back in '62 when I needed tires for my '13, the Firestone 30X3's were all you could buy, and I think they were around $45 each. They made the rears too, but they weren't non skids, and were about the same price. I too opted for the Monkey Ward rears, because you could still buy them for $17 each. I think tubes were around $2! Times have changed, and I'm ready for the 4th set of tires for that car.
A very Happy Christmas to all my Model T chums & hopes of some prosperity in 2009.
It's great to see a Christmas card from England with a right hand drive Model T. I'm sure glad that a greeting card company in your country printed a picture like that. Any guess on what make the truck is supposed to be?
I think that's a "lorry" with a load of "ale"!
